Join us after the 7:30pm show on Thursday, March 8, 2018 for a fascinating discussion with Mou Banerjee about their work and Guards at the Taj.
Mou Banerjee is a College Fellow at Harvard, where she also received her PhD in Modern South Asian History. Her dissertation examines conversion to Protestant Christianity in colonial Bengal. She analyses and explains how conversion emerged as the earliest locus of public debate, social reform and anti-colonial resistance in colonial India in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Using conversion as an historical lens, Banerjee traces a history of the creation of the Indian political self.
